Colwell Road, Wellingborough

£186,950 - Sold S.T.C.

A beautifully presented 3 bedroom traditional town house situated within just a few minutes walk of Wellingborough railway station (London -St Pancras in approx 55 minutes). The house has been sympathetically improved and updated by the current owners to create a very comfortable home and the property would be very appealing for any commuter buyer wanting close proximity to the station.

The street has a residents parking permit scheme in place that prevents non-residents from parking during weekday mornings.

The accommodation includes a tiled hallway, sitting room, family room, kitchen, conservatory, landing, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a south facing garden with a detached garden room that is used as an external kitchen currently.

The character of the house has been preserved by the retention of the original sash windows to the front facade (UPVC double-glazing elsewhere), original fireplaces to many rooms, stripped wood doors, striped wood banister rails etc. These period features have been blended with modern comforts such as gas radiator central heating, conservatory addition etc.

Viewing highly recommended.
